SUBJECT: To determinate the frecuency and the time of development of the gallbladder stones in gastrectomy post-operated patients with stomach adenocarcinoma at The National Cancer Institute in Lima, Peru. METHODS: In an observational, descriptive and retrospective case series design, 148 patiens' files who underwent gastrectomy for stomach adenocarcinoma in the National Cancer Institue of Lima during 1990 and 2000, have been reviewed looking for the development of gallbladder stones...

Patients with adenosquamous carcinoma of the gallbladder tend to present with a bulky tumor that frequently displays involvement with adjacent organs, and diagnosis is usually made at an advanced stage. This may contribute to the poor prognosis of patients with adenosquamous carcinoma of the gallbladder compared to patients with adenocarcinoma. We present herein a patient with advanced adenosquamous carcinoma of the gallbladder who is doing well with no evidence of recurrence more than 5 years after radical resection...

Gallbladder carcinoma is the most common malignancy of the biliary tract. Because of a lack of specific presentations, this condition frequently is diagnosed only at an advanced stage. The clinical difference between gallbladder carcinoma with and without biliary involvement remains uncertain. This study recruited all patients with gallbladder carcinoma treated at Chang Gung Memorial Hospital (Taoyuan, Taiwan) from 1987 to 2002. The sample included 120 patients aged 28 to 91 years (mean 65.5 +/- 12.3 years) (39 men, 81 women), whose medical records were reviewed retrospectively...

BACKGROUND: We present our experience with intra-abdominal malignancies different from gallbladder cancer not diagnosed preoperatively and undiscovered during laparoscopic cholecystectomy METHODS: This study involved retrospective analysis of 10 patients hospitalized in the Second Department of General Surgery between 1993 and 2000. In all of them, laparoscopic cholecystectomy had been performed between one week and 21 months earlier. RESULTS: Primary or metastatic neoplasms were diagnosed in five men and five women patients ages 38 to 79 years...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The complications of cholelithiasis and cholecystitis after gastrectomy for gastric carcinoma were reviewed. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Between 1983 and 1988, 474 patients with a normal gallbladder received gastrectomy for gastric cancer. RESULTS: Among the 288 patients who underwent radical gastrectomy with systematic lymphadenectomy (RG), 9 (3.1%) were suffering from acute postoperative acalculous cholecystitis, and 2 of them died...

The incidence of surgical treatment of peptic ulcer decreased in the last two decades. The majority of procedures for surgical management of peptic disease impairs the ability of the stomach to receive and to store food. The intake of high protein-caloric content diets can improve some nutritional deficits expressed by loss of body weight and anemia. The mechanism responsible for diarrhea is unknown, but truncal vagotomy has the highest incidence. It is usually episodic, lessens over the first year after operation and rarely remains a severe problem...

OBJECTIVE: This study analyzed the results in 229 patients with primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) who were treated by radical hepatic resection in the past 11 years. SUMMARY BACKGROUND DATA: Due to marked advances in diagnostic and therapeutic methods, the therapeutic strategy for HCC has changed significantly. However, there are still many problems to be solved when hepatic resection is to be performed for HCC associated with chronic liver disease. A satisfactory result may be possible only when all of accurate operative indication, skillful surgical technique, and sophisticated postoperative management are met...

Pseudolymphoma is an uncommon benign lesion of the stomach that poses a difficult problem in diagnosis and management. The clinical manifestations and endoscopic, radiologic, and biopsy findings are not generally helpful in making this diagnosis preoperatively. Histologic examination of the lesion is the only reliable method that distinguishes pseudolymphoma from true lymphoma. Distinguishing histologic features of pseudolymphomas are (1) formation of true germinal centers, (2) presence of a polymorphous inflammatory infiltrate, and (3) absence of lymph nodal involvement by lymphoma...

During the last 6 years, 205 patients with primary hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) were admitted to our surgical departments. Thirty-eight had HCC smaller than 3 cm in diameter. There were 34 men and 4 women with an average age of 56.5 years. All patients had underlying hepatic disease: liver cirrhosis in 35 patients and chronic active hepatitis with fibrosis in the remaining 3. Pre-operative complications included: oesophageal varices in ten, cholelithiasis in five, peptic ulcer in two, gastric cancer in one, and severe hypersplenism in one instance...

The purpose of this study is to find the relationship between the serum iron level and defensive function by observing the iron metabolic change following surgical operation, including serum iron, serum ferritin, and urinary iron excretion of TPN patients, and by measuring the NBT test of neutrophilic leukocyte and the level of serum immunoglobulins simultaneously. Thirty surgical patients were studied (10 cholecystectomies, 10 modified radical mastectomies, and 10 subtotal gastrectomies). Following surgical operation, the serum iron level dropped significantly as the result of the stress of operation rather than blood dilatation or urine iron excretion...

Gallbladder contractile function was observed by B-mode ultrasonography on patients with radical gastrectomy for gastric carcinoma (20 cases), with subtotal gastrectomy for peptic ulcer (36 cases), and with highly selective vagotomy (7 cases). Thirty-one preoperative patients with peptic ulcer were used as control. It was found that within one month after radical or subtotal gastrectomy the average area and the volume of the gallbladder became much larger than that found in control group. The empty rate of the gallbladder was found decreased and the remainder bile increased...
